I appreciate your input very much. This machine is a standalone unit. 
That's why I'm using "localhost". The user account has already been 
set-up in MySQL with the correct privileges, and I'm able to login at 
the console command prompt using "mysql -h localhost -u pauld -p 
my_pwd", with no problem at all. That's why I'm assuming that the 
problem lies somewhere else.
